  • What is Mark Zuckerberg expected to say?

    11:54 a.m. ET: Mark Zuckerberg plans to apologize for not taking a broad enough view of Facebook’s responsibilities, a source told CBS News.

    The Facebook CEO is expected to discuss action the company has taken against Cambridge Analytica, according to a source with knowledge of Zuckerberg’s remarks.

    Cambridge Analytica is the controversial, now-shuttered British political consulting firm whose use of Facebook data during the 2016 American presidential election and the U.K. “Brexit” referendum has led to multiple investigations.

    Zuckerberg was also expected to discuss Facebook’s efforts to protect election integrity and seek to emphasize the importance of Europe to the company.
